# The gas inside a cylinder expands against a constant external pressure of 0.991 atm from a volume of 3.65 L to a volume of 14.60 L. In doing so, it turns apaddle immersed in 0.908 L of liquid benzene (C6H6). Calculate the temperature rise of the liquid, assuming no loss of heat to the surroundings orfrictional losses in the mechanism. Take the density of liquid CgH, to be 0.879 g cm3 and its specific heat to be 1.74 J °C- g.Hints: The expansion work done by the gas is given by: w = -PexternalAV and 1 L atm =101.325 J.AT =°C
